I'll start by saying that the venue and location is nice, the staff were friendly (if not a bit matter-of-fact) and our waiter gave a great suggestion of superb bottle of wine. The food, however, was disappointing. We went for the 10 course tasting menu...More

I absolutely loved this food, location and atmosphere however it was slightly ruined by snobby and elusive staff that catered to only local wealthy Italians. When a restaurant achieves one Michelin star it’s a huge feat and a massive accolade so don’t ruin it by...More

We really liked our diner at L'essenza, atmosphere was really good, friendly and helpful staff and a really good quality of food. The menu is surprising, with some well-known items in a new version, but also some surprising new dishes. We also liked the wine...More

L’Essenza had a beautiful setting in the small streets of Olbia. We chose the set menu (80€) and a wine menu (30€). The food was terribly dissapointing, with sand in the seafood and a not very successful combination of taste in the 10 different courses....More

Its a nice little bistro in the downtown of Olbia. The menu is quite simple but it has a bit of everything. The food is super good and the waiter was very nice. Its not a cheap restaurant but its worth it

One of the better restaurants in Olbia, gourmet sized dishes. The food was excellent, staff was welcoming. They had a impressive selection of wines. Service could have been faster. And I experienced a bit of an annoyance when paying the check

My husband and I stumbled on this little restaurant while walking through Olbia prior to our departure to the USA. The ambiance is lovely and the food is excellent. It is not your pizza and pasta place and it is not cheap, but worth every...More
